Product Info*

Ganoderma lucidum has been recognized as a precious health supplement for thousands of years. The Ancient Chinese Pharmacopoeia claims that it is one of the few truly "superior" medicinal agents that can strengthen and augment the body well-being.

Our Ganoderma lucidum is carefully made from wall-broken spores and concentrated aqueous extracts of mycelia harvested in the wild and through advanced bio-fermentation process. Our spores come from wild, carefully harvested fungi broken to 98% yield with an in-house cell rupture process. As a result, our product is rich in polysaccharides, triterpenoids, polypeptides and trace elements that are readily assimilated by the body. These features distinguish our product from all others in the market.

Clinical Trials & Research Reports**

  • Studies suggest Ganoderma lucidum is effective in alleviating the side effects of chemo and radiation therapy. Additionally, the patient's food-intake may increase while using reishi.**
    — The American Journal of Chinese Medicine, 20051

  • A study on reishi and breast cancer showed Ganoderma lucidum displayed anti-tumor activity against human breast cancer cells and immunomodulatory activities.**
    —Journal of the Australian Traditional-Medicine Society, 20072

  • Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides can improve the metabolic abnormalities of diabetic mice and delay diabetic renal complications. **
    —Journal of Asian Natural Products Research, 20063

  • A study indicated that the Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide isolate is a potential agent in the fight against certain types of human herpes viruses.**
    —Journal Of Ethnopharmacology, 20004

  • Triterpenoids are the predominant triterpenes in reishi, possessing multiple bioactivities, including immunomodulating, antioxidative, and antitumor effects.**

Side Effects & Warnings*

In clinical studies, reishi mushrooms have been shown to be nontoxic in high doses, and severe side effects have not been observed. Mild side effects may include stomach upset, dry mouth, diarrhea, and skin rash, and generally disappear after several days. Side effects can be alleviated by stopping use, or in the case of stomach upset and diarrhea, taking the supplement with meals.
